Drill Bit Trays

By: John Doyle
Keeping track of drill bits in the shop can be like herding cats. This is a simple way to keep track of all them in one place.

After years of fumbling through a drawer looking for the right drill bit, I decided to devise a better solution. The result was the drawer inserts you see here.

The bits are organized neatly in trays with shallow slots to hold them in place. The two-level, sliding trays allow me to quickly access any bit I need.

The slots for the twist bits were made using a bowl bit at the router table. I used a dado blade to cut slots for the Forstner bits. Now my bits are always at the ready.
